    Thanks for all the effort over the years, Cisco!

    Speaking of wings, what's Terrance Williams doing with himself these days?

    I love him as a person. His toughness has always been welcome on this team.
    But as a player, he just hasn't brought it lately. Still, I wish him the best.

    Garcia was always cheering the guys on when I come to watch the games.

    Locker room will probably miss his presence

    his playing days are done. he was a good role player and vet leader for a young team.

    with ariza, terry, and brewer, we don't need to use a roster spot specifically for veteran leadership.

    he never quit, he never complained, he just got old and regressed.

    I'd love if we can sign him as a staff member like we did with Powell.

    We did sign Powell didn't we?

    He really looked like a declining player this season and never really found his shot, but i loved the intangibles he seemed to bring to the team.

    Thought the same thing. Tweets are basically implying as much.

    (And yes, if Garcia gets claimed off waivers, the claiming team takes on his contract, and it gets wiped off the Rockets' books.)

    We'll see what happens over the next day or two.

    harden, Ariza, brewer, Dwight, Tjones,

    Good luck to teams trying to score down the stretch or go small with Pwolve for Tjones.

    2 bad seasons in a row following a nice little playoff run. This was coming. I'm sure he knew it.

    He got severe injuries lifting, granted in just about the stupidest way possible.

    Pretty sure him and Harden developed a great relationship.

    But yeah his time was up, with us...

    The thing is that he looked really good at the FIBA games; shot was going in, bulked up slightly, gave USA some trouble in that game when he hit like 3 threes in the first couple of minutes. I thought he had a resurgence.

    But since that OKC series. He has been just bad.

    Still one of my favorite recent Rockets due to his toughness and "don't mess with me" attitude. Shame he couldn't end it on a good note.
